Parades, Parties and Buying Local


This weekend is a party weekend that’s for sure!

Saturday morning I’m heading out to Westside Daze to ride along in the parade. It is starting at 10:30am starting at Butt Rd and Old Okanagan Hwy toward Main St. Bring your friends and family spot me in the Fun Seeker car during the parade. And don’t forget a lawn chair. This weekend long celebration will feature food trucks, vendors, games, kids zones, concerts and fireworks! The tent will be set up after the parade so be sure to stop by and say hi. The Westside Daze fireworks will be near the West Kelowna Yacht Club starting at 10:00pm.

After the parade I will be switching gears and heading to the biggest party in the Okanagan. The Downtown Kelowna Block Party will be along Bernard all day from 10-4. The free community event fuses culture, art, food, shopping and entertainment. Over 150 vendors, children's activities, dancing, music line the street. Everyone is invited to check out the free block party and you can find me outside the Royal Anne from 2-4.

Sunday I’m starting off at the East Kelowna Market amongst the orchards and vineyards in southeast Kelowna. The market will feature live local musicians dropping in to play acoustic sets, a revolving roster of food trucks, crafters, artists and visionaries set up every week to show off what they do. The market is at the East Kelowna Hall from 10-2:30 and I will be there with the coveted prize wheel. After the market I think I will head on over to Gyro Beach to finish off my weekend by the water.
